Courses dropped after the first two weeks (or the equivalent for Graduate & Seminary students) are considered late course withdrawals and will appear as such on the student's academic record. Between the third and sixth weeks of classes, a student who withdraws from a course will be given a pro-rated refund of tuition fees and will receive a grade of 'W' on his or her transcript. Signatures of the student's instructor(s) and academic advisor are required. The Form, Change of Registration Weeks 1-6 is available on the Office of the Registrar Forms Page.
Withdrawal after six weeks is not permitted except in severe extenuating circumstances (as assessed by the University Registrar); documentation of the circumstances is required. In such cases, a WP or WF grade will be assigned by the instructor(s) concerned. There is no tuition refund on withdrawals after week six. Forms for three to six week and seven to eleven week withdrawals are available from the Office of the Registrar. Withdrawal from a course is not permitted after the eleventh week of classes in a semester.
You might be waitlisted in a course because the class has reached its capacity (W). If the course is full and you want a place in the class, you may wish to talk to your instructor about providing a course authorization.
